PHILIPSBURG – Due to the severe damage caused to Haiti by Hurricane Mathew last October, Foundation Catholic Education St. Maarten (SKOS), in collaboration with the Catholic Haitian Community of The St. Martin of Tours Parish organized a food and clothes drive for the people of Haiti.
This took place within the Catholic schools, from Friday, October 28, through Friday, November 4. “Our students were given the opportunity to put our theme for this school into practice, which is ‘We are called to share with others,’” said SKOS in a statement.
“The drive was a great success. The support from the staff, parents and students was overwhelming. For this, we are extremely grateful. This is what Catholic Education is all about. Love in action!” the release concluded.
